tooth ache Rss

hi

i am 19 weeks pregnant and have found that i get a really bad tooth ache at night. the dentist in my home town will not take it out as of the antiseptic they give,

Do you have any other suggestions i could do for the pain?

thanks
stacey
Hi Stacey,
Thank you for your enquiry. You really need to fix the problem with your tooth as ongoing toothache and infections can affect the pregnancy. It is probably advisable to get a second opinion as most teeth problems can be treated in pregnancy. As for pain relief, paracetemol is safe to take during pregnancy.
Best wishes,
Alex.
